So that means the BC is likely not the mythical factory lift option discussed earlier... I am starting to think I should order my Rubicon in tank instead of waiting for Sand and this unicorn factory lift option.

The only discussion of BC details is what Archer posted. Everything else is just what some of us were hoping Back Country would mean.

The little hint Archer gave has me worried it might not be as functional as we had hoped.

The term discussion pointed to "factory lift" (as in someone who is presumed to have solid knowledge says this was mentioned at the dealers meeting), not the BC option. I was not implying anything wrong with the discussion or anyones opinions on what could possibly be. There was a reasonable guess to be made that BC and factory lift may be one in the same, but alas this may not be the case. Just to be clear, I have no problem with the guy who is passionate about the product he helps build and value every bit of information he provides.

But I will say, and this is directed at FCA, it is somewhat frustrating, that as a consumer who would like to order a jeep built to a reasonable specification, I have no official idea of what options will be available at any given time, that options listed as officially available in the model year will be unavailable at points during the year, and that if I wanted to have two of those such options, I must pray to any number of gods that there is a period of overlap between the number of such options I wish *and* that I am aware of that overlap so I can run down to the dealership and order it. I get it, the dealership model says go down and buy what they have on the lot. The dealer is smarter than me and knows what I will want anyhow. Maybe, just maybe, you find a dealer who is flexible enough to get something already built that is close enough to what you want sitting on a lot elsewhere shipped to them.

While I understand that Bugatti's approach of custom color and interior for every Veyron is not scalable to a mass market brand, the idea that options within a model year should be made available throughout the model year is not radical. This is why the pain being felt in Detroit is not about to end anytime soon. As uber did with taxis and livery service, Tesla, Elio and Polaris (and possibly Apple... Google it, there is serious auto design hiring going on there) will do to car sales, or so I hope.

Roger I am tracking. I know sometimes our discussion of hopes and wishes clouds some of the leaked details and I don't want to do that. I am grateful for the little nuggets we get from our insiders. Like you I feel there is room for improvement in the business model at the corporate level. I'm sure they have their reasons for doing what they do but it baffles me for sure.

Just wanted to make sure I wasn't causing some of that frustration. Hopefully we will have more details soon but as you said I kind of doubt those details and tank will overlap.

No complaints here. Seems to me the powers that be could just offer us a Wrangler Sport, Sahara and Rubicon in six different colors and leave it at that... and guess what? They'd still sell every damn one of them. The fact that they are constantly offering up different colors, options, packages and editions is just the cherry on top of the sunday as far as I'm concerned. Also keep in mind... they're all produced in that little old factory in Toledo. There are certain constraints on what is doable and what is not. The amount of colors that can be offered at one time for example. But hey... I'm not frustrated and I'm not a complainer. My jeep glass is half full. Hell, my jeep glass in filled to the brim!
